“The Tripoli judicial police department received, on the 17th of March, a complaint by the Ethiopian domestic worker B. E., 33, regarding a rape offense,” the ISF's public relations department said in a statement.     

“Following thorough investigations, it was revealed that the worker had headed with her employer to an agency for the recruitment of migrant domestic workers in Koura's Kousba town after a dispute erupted between them,” the statement  said.      

Further investigations revealed that the agency's female secretary L. S., 24, had called agency employee A. Z., 40, and asked him to come to office to settle the aforementioned dispute, the statement added.        

“As soon as he arrived, he beat up the worker with the aim of 'disciplining her' and forced her to undress under the pretext of searching her. Then, he raped her after assaulting her with his belt, within earshot of the secretary,” the ISF said.    

The statement added that the man threatened the Ethiopian worker not to tell her employer about what happened inside the office, noting that following medical examinations, a forensic doctor confirmed the presence of bruises on “sensitive spots” of the worker's body.         

Accordingly, employee A. Z. and the secretary L. S. were arrested upon authorization from the concerned judicial authorities.
